Support The Bass Hang: I decided to try these new prototype MFD P pickups in my Custom Shop Matador. They are super punchy and I really love them. The output is definitely more than normal Alnico V pickups and my favorite thing about the pickups is that they make all notes on this bass super even, for live playing they are outstanding. It’s strung up with D’Addario XL Nickel strings and I recorded direct through my A-Designs REDDI and Universal Audio 1176 straight into my Universal Audio Apollo Twin interface.
